The Chief of Army Staff Lt General Tukur Yusufu Buratai has charged officers and men of the Nigerian Army on the need to be mentally and physically alert for them to be able to discharge their duties deligently.
According to him, – “We should not forget our calling as officers and soldiers. Discipline is the watchword. Anything we do without discipline will not only rubbish whatever we are as individuals, body or as an institution, so we keep up our discipline, dedication, regimentation and physical well being to face our duties seriously as expected of us.”
He called on soldiers not to be caught on the wrong side of the law on no account while doing everything possible to maintain the integrity, image and reputation of the Nigerian Army.
The 10 kilometre walk featured all the units of the Nigerian Army, Directors, Principal Staff Officers, Staff Officers and Commanders of the Nigerian Army serving in Abuja was as usual massively attended.
